First 19x19 Review Request

Hello! Could I request someone to review my first 19x19 game? I played 30 games of 9x9 and 13x13 this past week and also worked on Tsumego problems from “Graded Go Problems for Beginners” (Volume 1 for 30K-25K) in addition to beginning to read “Opening Theory Made Easy.”

I found 13x13 to be very exciting and wanted to try a 19x19 game, and had a lot of fun! I hope to play more 19x19 games in the near future, but wanted to know what moves might be better in certain situations, and also which moves might have been particularly detrimental, etc.

This is also my first post on the OGS Forums, so please excuse any mistakes.

The link to the game is here. Thank you!


I haven’t looked at the whole game, but I think your most important mistake was your last move. Instead of R2, you should have played L2. That would have won the game, I think

that graph…
problem is not some single move. You both have not enough understanding about when to end game and status of groups

I would recommend to play some more 9x9 before return to 19x19

currently its more correct to say that result of game is “undefined”, than that someone won
